18th Street Arts Center COVID-19 Response

Due to a spike in coronavirus cases in many California counties, including LA, Governor Gavin Newsom has ordered all museums and galleries (along with other indoor venues) to close for at least the next three weeks.

Therefore, 18th Street Arts Center must once again close our doors. Protecting our staff, artists, and visitors are of utmost importance, and we will reopen once it is safe to do so.

In the meantime, we have exciting exhibitions opening online soon, brand-new exhibitions pages for our current shows so you can explore the them online, and we have lots of fantastic new content every week on our 18@Home and Arts Learning Lab @ Home channels.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2018-2019, 18th Street Arts Center is one of the top 20 artist residency programs in the US, and the largest in Southern California. Conceived as a radical think tank in the shape of an artist community, 18th Street supports artists from around the globe to imagine, research, and develop significant, meaningful new artworks and share them with the public to foster radical imagination, empathy, and positive social change.
